Topsides UK 2017 will provide a technical conference and exhibition to allow a shared platform for Operators and Supply Chain to share learnings and best practice through case studies; encouraging discussion on how to balance efficiency, integrity and investment. Building on the Industry established forums such as Production Efficiency Task Force (PETF) the conference Technical Committee aim to explore, in more depth, key areas affecting every stage of Topside operations, some of which are offered below. Energy Institute CPD points are available for attendees, for this local, low cost training and development opportunity.


This year, the conference agenda will be driven by BP, Centrica, ConocoPhillips, EnQuest, Shell, TAQA and the OGA.

We are requesting 200 word abstracts to build a strong technical programme which will see a series of 25 minute presentations on topics including but not limited to:
